I was completely unaware "Liberals Use Witchcraft Against Conservatives"

This guy is nuttier than a squirrel turd.
The web literally is coming down on America. And what’s sad is, how many Christians feel this fog on their head at times? Do you feel that? It’s almost like everything’s going wrong. We don’t realize it’s a remnant operating strategically through organizations that are intent on shifting the American culture and discipling the country. And that fog that’s on Christians is the collective witchcraft that comes over the Body of Christ because there’s spirits being authorized to be released.


The fog on the heads of the idjits sending money to these televangelists is not witchcraft, it's stupidity.



Deplorable's Night Out - Cracker Barrel Edition

http://thebitchywaiter.com/2016/10/waitress-receives-note-with-ridiculous-advice-instead-of-a-tip.html

Transcript, as the napkin is a bit tough to read-
Heres your tip:

The womans place is in the home. You’re place is in the home. It even says so in the Bible. You may think that your contributing to your household by coming into work, but your not. While your in here “working” this is the reason your husband must see another women on his way home from a long day at his work. Because you should be home taking care of the household duties. You may think what you are doing “working” is right, it is really essentially a disgrace to his manhood and to the American family. So instead of coming to your “job” and looking for hand out’s to feed your family, hows about going home and cleaning your house and cooking a hot meal for your husband and children, the way you’re husband and God intended, and help make America great again. Praying for families and our nation.

Love,
The Watley’s



Retort from the good folks at "The Bitchy Waiter"

Learn how to spell.
Enough with the Bible thumping.You can have your beliefs, but it does not mean everyone has to share them.
It’s 2016, Mr and Mrs. Watley. Women can do whatever they want, including working.
I bet Mrs. Watley has missionary sex once a week with her husband and she looks at it as a chore, just like doing laundry, scrubbing the floors and making a roasted chicken every Friday night.
Why are the words working and job in quotes? WAITING TABLES IS A REAL FREAKING JOB!
If God intended women to stay home and cook meals and clean house, then why did He give them brains enough to realize that is total bullshit?
Make America Great Again? It suddenly makes sense. Making America great again, for some people, means going backwards in time.

Kansas Republican Thought Touting ‘Profound’ Hitler Quote Was A Good Idea – It Wasn’t

http://addictinginfo.org/2016/10/20/this-kansas-republican-thought-touting-profound-hitler-quote-was-a-good-idea-it-wasnt/

Not going to quote Hitler here, but it's yet another example of republiclowns gone wild under the influence of Drumpenfuhrer.

Republicans have a knack for making bad choices, but this one is a whopper. One Kansas Republican thought it would be a good idea to put a post on social media featuring a quote from Adolf Hitler that she deemed “profound.”

Speaker Pro Tem Peggy Mast, R-Emporia, who happens to also be the No. 3 Republican in the Kansas House, posted the offensive quote to her Facebook page.




Summary of Debate Performance by Dan Rather.

http://occupydemocrats.com/2016/10/20/dan-rathers-newest-debate-analysis-read-every-american/
Clinton hit Trump hard on issue after issue with knowledge and facts – on Russia, the Supreme Court, nuclear weapons, immigration, and the list goes on. You could disagree with her on policy, but you can’t question whether she knows what she’s talking about. One big line that I think will play on was in the dust up over Russia. Who would have thought that years after the end of the Cold War the specter of Russia would loom over and American presidential campaign? But there you have it. When the discussion turned to Wikileaks and who was responsible for the hack, Trump, disagreeing with the assessment of the U.S. intelligence agencies, said we don’t know who is behind it. Clinton fired back – He would rather believe Vladimir Putin than the military professionals and intelligence officials. It’s a line you could expect from Ronald Reagan.

By contrast, Trump has been skating through the campaign on buzzwords and applause lines that fire up his base. Tonight the format asked for more substance and he struggled. He often left topics dangling, meandered through head-scratching sentences, and fumbled with thoughts that went nowhere – all lines of thoughts wavering in the wind. Often his most cogent statements were cheap shots. When he would stop talking, I sometimes had to ask myself what was he talking about?

How Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter helped police target black activists

http://fusion.net/story/356808/facebook-twitter-instagram-geofeedia-tracking/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=blackvoices

Further proof that, if you use a free online service, YOU are the product.

The ACLU announced Tuesday that Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram gave Chicago-based company Geofeedia access to user information that helped law enforcement agencies monitor and target activists of color. Emails between law enforcement and reps for Geofeedia reveal the company’s “special access” to the social media sites, even referring to a “partnership” with Instagram and Facebook. In response to the findings, all three sites—Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter—have terminated Geofeedia’s access to their data.

---
As uncovered by the ACLU, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook have all provided Geofeedia with varying levels of access to this data, which it then used as a bargaining chip when negotiating with law enforcement. There are no exact numbers on how many people were targeted, but as discussed in a Geofeedia “case study,” they were directly involved in the Baltimore Police Department’s response to the Freddie Gray protests. Calling it a “stroke of luck” that the BPD renewed their Geofeedia contract only days before the protests, the study reveals that law enforcement used facial recognition software to identify specific protestors from social media photos. They then matched that information to outstanding warrants and arrested protestors “directly from the crowd.”

---
Most troubling is that Geofeedia is just one part of an entire economy of mass surveillance tools that source similar location-based social media information. Dataminr, MediaSonar, X1 Social Discovery, and Dunami, all have similar scanning, keyword filtering, and real-time geolocation features. Whether these services are collaborating with law enforcement for mass-surveillance has not been revealed, but the conversation on privacy and fears of police overreach continues.


Now can we admit we live in a police/surveillance state?
